It’s become clear that prices of next-gen games may very well become costlier across the board starting this Holiday season. 2K’s upcoming NBA 2K21 has been confirmed as the first game to be priced at $70 (as opposed to the current industry standard $60) for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, while parent company Take-Two Interactive has said that prices for other next-gen games will be decided on a title-to-title basis. Analysts, meanwhile, have suggested that other third party publishers are also considering price hikes.

Things on that front are yet to become clearer, but Capcom did recently address the matter. In their recent quarterly Q&A with investors, when asked about the issue, Capcom said that they were yet undecided on the matter, and that they would be closely monitoring the situation and making a decision based on industry trends.

“We do not have a set policy at this time,” Capcom said. ” We will consider our approach having analyzed both our strengths and weaknesses while closely monitoring industry trends.”

Recently, Ubisoft confirmed that their games releasing for PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2020 – Watch Dogs: Legion and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be sold at the standard $60 price, but did not comment on games releasing beyond that point.

Capcom, meanwhile, have Resident Evil Village in the pipeline for PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2021, while Pragmata is also confirmed for next-gen consoles.
